Rededication Ceremonies

For Leaders

Candle Ceremony
At each *, a candle should be lit.

Leader: Today (or tonight), we came in silence as we rededicate ourselves to Scouting. We light three candles
signifying the three parts of our Promise as together we renew it.

All: On my honor, I will try to serve God and my country *, to help people at all times *, and to live by the Girl
Scout Law *.

Leader: Our opportunity comes to us through value - the right to grow through our experience in the Promise and
Law. This candle becomes a bright as we realize our golden opportunities. *

Adult: On my honor, I will TRY. I cannot succeed if I do not try. So I will try, I may not always succeed but I will
grow with every new experience as I put into practice the Promise and Law

Leader: Our goal is to help girls be good citizens today and active citizens tomorrow*

Adult: I am proud of God and my country. And on my honor, I will try to serve God, my country, and help people
at all times to the best of my ability.

Leader: The Scout loves her country and has knowledge of its relationship to the world. *

Adult: All women are sisters. We learn that there are many likenesses in all people, but where there are
differences, we gain exciting opportunities of understanding

Leader: The pathway of Girl Scouting grows broader and other people become involved*

Adult: Others need me. It is good to know that I have skills and knowledge which can make someone else happier

Leader: Opportunities to develop into a more capable person are given to the Girl Scout as she assumes her role in
the troop and in her patrol*

Adult: I am a link in the golden chain of Girl Scouting. It can be no stronger than each link

Leader: Each Scout is an individual and by keeping herself forever fit, she is better ready to serve others and to
enjoy everyday living*

Adult: It is my privilege to keep myself physically fit, to live with kind thoughts and unselfish deeds and to keep
myself morally strong

Leader: And so the light grows brighter as it now fills this room and these hearts with the flame of

Pin new leaders, having them each repeat the Promise, if desired.

Great Thoughts
Girl Scouting is not a world apart, but a part of the world. As we rededicate ourselves today, let us
keep in mind ways in which we can make Girl Scouting an even stronger part of our world.

Here are some thoughts:

 Juliette Low frequently reminded the National Board, when much organizational planning
had to be done, “We mustn’t lose sight of the girls. The girls must always come first.”
 Thomas Edison said, “Genius is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration.”
 Thank you for loaning me your daughter. For letting her make me smile. For letting her be
a Girl Scout.
 We cannot learn from one another – until we stop shouting at one another; until we speak
quietly enough that our words can be heard as well as our voices.” – Richard Nixon
 Girls are the only reason for Girl Scouting. Everything in Girl Scouting is designed for their
needs and interests.
 Look up and not down – Look forward and not back – Look out and not in – Lend a hand.
 According to Peter Drucker, often called the founding father of the discipline of
management, “The best run organization in the United States is the Girl Scouts. Tough,
hardworking women can do anything.”
 Girl Scouting is people. People like you who give their time, their energy, and their love to
help prepare today’s girls for tomorrow’s world.

Let’s all join together in saying the Girl Scout Promise.

Eyes on you

We, the leaders of ___________, members of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America,
united by our acceptance of the Girl Scout Promise and Law

And inspired by the vision of the founder of the Girl Scout Movement in the United States,
Juliette Gordon Low;

Do rededicate ourselves to the purpose of inspiring girls with the highest ideals of character,
conduct, patriotism, and service, that they may become happy and resourceful citizen.

Read this poem :

There are eyes upon you and they're watching night and day;
There are ears that quickly take in every word you say;
There are hands all eager to do anything you do;
And a girl who's dreaming of the day she'll be like you.
You're the girl's idol. You're the wisest of the wise;
In her mind, about you, no suspicions ever rise;
She believes in you devoutly, holds that all you say and do,
she'll say and do, in your way, when she's a grown-up like you.
There's a wide-eyed girl who believes you're always right.
And her ears are always open; and she watches day and night.
You are setting an example every day in all you do,
for a girl who's waiting to grow up to be just like you.

Recite the Promise together.
